“Horrible smell”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Rude staff, ruder owner... cigarette smelling rooms, leaking a/c, food is not at all good

It's the only veg place in the area and it's cheap...Lot of parking space ...

I will never go there again...

Try IRIS or Grand McGrath if you can't afford Gateway

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I've been visiting this hotel for over 5 years now as a business traveler & have found it very comfortable from the stay & food point of view.In the heart of the city,still little inside from the hustle-bustle & traffic noise,the ambience is good.The best part is the food,pure vegetarian & tasty with variety of choices be it breakfast,lunch or dinner.Its restuarant is very popular even amongst the localites.Whenever in Bangalore,I love to stay here & enjoy.

Nice hotel, peaceful almosphere. In the heart of Bangalore. Lot shopping places, eateries are nearby if you like to eat outside. It is a strictly vegeterian hotel, breakfast included.

Room Tip: Take a room in the back side , it gives you a good view of greenary.

Not a value for money, very old rooms, bathrooms are bad! the only thing going in favour is the location...old HVAC system...so sometimes the A/c's don't function....i would not recommend to go to this hotel if you have other choices in the same price range! only vegetarian food served.

Have been staying here for over 5 years. Excellent location, Fantastic Breakfast. Only Vegetarian food available. The rooms have been upgraded as well. Good Value for money. Airconditioning is very good - gets too cold sometimes. Hotel staff is good. Very close to the heart of Bangalore, Brigade road., MG road where other shops, restaurants and Pubs are there.

I generally stay here for my regular business trips. Very well located in city centre. Rooms are very spacious and neat. The greatest part is food which is excellent. Staff is also courteous. The centrallised AC in the room makes some noise and needs attention. But overall an excellent package for the price.

Room Tip: Book 2 days in advance
